P. 413, note 211. Mr. L. C. I-Iopkins writes : ' I venture to think that in this instance Chavannes' translation of the text is not quite accurate. If we refer to No. 75o, we see that he renders the same four characters
by " avec respect, conformément au texte écrit ". But in No. 754 he translates, " Je constate avec respect ceci : la lettre officielle (a été envoyée, etc.) ". But I believe the first rendering is right, and that this passage should run, " in respectful accordance with the written Dispatch, (the writer) had previously reached Lou-Ian, etc.".'

1'. 753, note 5. Mr. L. C. Hopkins writes : ' In this case I do not think M. Chavannes' translation is quite correct. The meaning of chii is " torch " simply. It is explained in the Shuo Wen as " to bind reeds and burn ". The only sense in literature or colloquial is "torch". In the passage quoted by Chavannes from the " text of Tang times ", there is no word implying " in succession ", and the translation is literally, " when they lit fire-signals, there were one torch, 2 torches, 3 torches, 4 torches, in accordance as, etc." That is, the number of separate flames visible showed the relative urgency of the alarm.'
